My daughter has just bought a D40. I bought a D50 as a first foray into digital SLR sometime ago, and was pleasantly surprised at what was tucked away, underneath a veneer of beginner-friendly green modes - bracketing, and it even AFd with my mechanically coupled older lenses, like my 55mm Macro-Nikkor.

The D40 has none of that. There's nothing to help the user grow. No bracketing, the Macro-Nikkor won't AF, so the only lenses which will are the electronic focussing ones. Read expensive.

Shame. Nice camera, but a bit limited.
